Abstract
This paper investigates construction systems of historical buildings in Azerbaijan-Iran by comparing and classifying their architectural elements in detail. Mithrava Mosque in Binab-city and Forty-Column Palace in Qazvin-city are presented as case studies that illustrate Azerbaijan timber architectural traits according to its style. The plans, sections and other technical data have been presented for evaluation of Azerbaijan timber constructions as an architectural style according to their special factors. The plans and all details of exemplary figures are presented based on field survey after controlling all the mentioned plans that are documented in heritage and cultural organization of eastern Azerbaijan in I.R Iran. There is a historical review of Azerbaijan timber architecture extending to 3000 years ago, covering Urartian, Maday and Safavid dynasties before attending to the technical details of construction methods in this paper. Then, important construction elements are analyzed in detail by their plans and sections that are documented on field survey.
